Lancaster through the year in pictures

by Paula Robezniece

Hi, I’m Paula and I’m one of Lancaster University’s digital content ambassadors.

I am in my fourth and final year studying Accounting and Finance in Lancaster University Management School (LUMS).

One of my biggest hobbies is photography thus I am happy to document my life at Lancaster through a series of monthly photo galleries.

As a student I spend a lot of time studying, so you will see some of my favourite studying spots. Also, in my free time, I like to attend some cultural events and hang out with my friends both on campus and in the town, which is why you can expect to see a lot of pictures of that as well.

With this project I wanted to show through pictures what it is like to study and live in Lancaster.


We did it! Congrats to the class of 2019!

I hope these galleries were insightful. I would like to thank the DCA team for creating this creative space and welcoming me in the team. This has been a truly wonderful experience!

And that’s me, saying bye to Lancaster and looking forward to new adventures!


After exams I revisited my favourite places in town.

Williamson park looks great in every season

The Ashton Memorial must be the most beautiful landmark in the whole of Lancaster

I just love how sometimes you can see the bay and hills across it

The River Lune has several interesting bridges in Lancaster


Between exams I enjoy walking around campus. It’s hard to believe that after 4 years here you still manage to discover new places!

Nice green area next to the Infolab21 building

Alex Square and Bowland tower on a sunny day

I love this green bit next to Engineering. I pass this place almost every day and always appreciate the little oasis

On rainy days you can find plenty of spaces to relax inside. Barker House Farm is this empty only early in the morning, after breakfast time it gets very lively

For me this study space in Barker House Farm was a discovery


Easter break in Lancaster was wonderful – ducklings, lots of flowers and unexplored paths around uni.

Tulips were a really nice addition to campus

The moment everyone has been waiting for – new ducklings!

Quite close to the uni is a nice café where you can sit by the canal, enjoy passing boats and have some ice cream

This place looks almost magical in real life

Possibly the best ice cream in Lancaster, and you can get it on campus

And that’s it, break has come to an end and it is time to return to the library


The end of Lent term, first signs of spring and a day trip to Chatsworth.

The Herbarium has become my favourite café in Lancaster

Spring has finally arrived!
